Some of you need to get laid. :P Its the 1969 GM XP 511, a three-wheeled commuter runabout. According to some info I found, it was a hybrid.

(This is off-topic but slightly related. Balthazar in your research and reading, have you ever come across a three-wheeled vehicle that was 'created' by a cross dresser guy and was part of a hoax, scam?...I faintly recall something like that)

Hm-mmm... not many 3-wheelers to chose from. The '48 Davis had some sort of legal troubles, defrauding, perhaps, but I don't recall any allegations of cross-dressing there.

....From a Motorcities site:

>>"Although Davis raised enough money from franchises to build 17 of the three-wheelers, he was unable to deliver on time to would-be dealers. Although steadfastly maintaining his innocence, Davis was convicted on 24 counts of fraud in January 1951. His request for an appeal was denied and in July of 1952 he was sentanced to an 18-month prison term."<<

I don't believe from what I read that the Davis was intended to be a 'scam', however. I don't think that's it.
